sd card wont show up when connected to car stereo

Sd card works fine until I connect it to my cars stereo system...it will only read what's on internal memory of the player...is this the way the player works or is there a way to make it visible to my cars stereo?

You're SOL.

The music library is no longer a single unit on the Clip Sport.

The card must be accessed independently even on the Clip Sport itself.

 

The completely artificial limts placed on the unit by SanDisk make no sense.

It's obvious that absolutely no market research or focus group work went into the product design.

This is a limitation of your car's stereo head unit. It will only "see" the internal memory of the device, not the external memory card. And I don't know of any car stereos that will.

The OP's problem has nothing to do with the Clip Sport's database being separated.

No, SanDisk's products are NOT faulty. As I said, the car stereo's head unit cannot 'see' more than one drive, the internal. It's like this with ALL car stereo units to my knowledge. It has nothing to do with the mp3 player.
